Keston Cobblers’ Club: UkeTube

I absolutely love Keston Cobblers’ Club’s new album One, for Words. It’s the best British album of the year. (This one would have been close if the second half was as good as the first.) The Cobblers kick off this week’s selection looking much better dressed than usual in a session for Burberry. Joining them […]

Ukulele Arpeggiator: Friday Links

Gary Jugart has put together a great (and free) ebook of fingerpicking studies Ukulele Arpeggiator. I’ve really enjoyed playing through them. Here’s a video I made of one of the studies. The difficulty ranges from straightforward to very tricky. If you’re looking to improve your picking you’ve got to grab it. There’s a new DVD […]

Bob’s Burgers Theme (Tab)

Loren Bouchard – Bob’s Burgers (Tab) I’ve been without a TV for a long time. It’s only now that Netflix has come to the UK that I’ve been catching up on things. One show that passed me by until recently was Bob’s Burgers. Turns out it’s packed with ukulele music (by the man behind the […]

Songs With Chords You Know – Updated

Here’s an update of my list of songs with beginner level chords. So no matter how few chords you know you can still bash out a few songs. C, F and G If you prefer, you can use G7 in the place of G or vice versa for any of these songs. NeverShoutNever! – Your […]

Beirut/Caetano Veloso – O Leaozinho (Chords)

Beirut/Caetano Veloso – O Leãozinho (Chords) I would have put have put good money on Beirut cropping up on the new Tribute to Caetano Veloso album alongside Beck, Devendra Banhart and Seu Jorge. But we still have their cavaquinho cover of Veloso’s O Leãozinho. I based the chords on the Beirut version but the original […]

Ledward Kaapana, Valerie June: UkeTube

Hard to hear the music this week over all the names being dropped. Namecheckees – in descending order of awesome – include: blues-ukulelist Little Laura Dukes, God-child Jesus, particle-botherer Brian Cox and dog-judger Stacey Solomon. Full Playlist

The Ukes Down Under: Friday Links

The UOGB documentary The Ukes Down Under is now available on DVD. Here’s the funniest DVD extra: the Aquila String Harvest. And if that’s of interest to you then, parliamentary sketch writer, Simon Hoggart knows exactly what you’re like, “They like to watch Miranda on TV, and hold their office Christmas parties at Café Rouge. […]

Bacharach and David – Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head (Instrumental Tab)

Bacharach and David – Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head (Instrumental Tab) Continuing the Hal David tribute with Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head. Not particularly a lyrical highlight of his but it did have a ukulele in. At least the original version did. It was replaced by a guitar in the rejiggered version. I’ve […]

Uke of Carl – Guest Post

I’m a big fan of Uke of Carl’s arrangements of various theme tunes for ukulele. A while back I had him write a guest post with a bunch of his tabs. Now’s he’s launched his own website and a series of ebooks so I asked him to write another guest post. And he was kind enough to […]

Bacharach and David – Anyone Who Had A Heart (Chords)

Dionne Warwick – Anyone Who Had A Heart (Chords) A tribute to Hal David with two Bacharach and David songs this week. Starting off with my favourite Anyone Who Had a Heart. The Americans got Dionne Warwick’s version and us Brits got the Cilla Black version. I’m not going to argue with anyone who thinks […]
